Back Wheel/axle

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm new to trials and brought a bike on the weekend (2nd hand). Just took it up the bike shop and apparently the back axle on the wheel is too small for the frame. Apparently this could damage the frame and/or the back wheel.

Is this true, and what do you recommend? (new wheel, hub...)

Sorry I'm not great at bikes, but we've all gotta learn someway :$

HI

Ok, iam guessing that its a da bomb frame or saracen, as there the only frames i know with 14mm drop outs, so that means its 10 mm axle.

i wouldnt bother buying a new axle or rim or a whole wheel, as most frames are 10 mm so when you up grade your frame at a later date, you will have to pay for a 10 mm then.

So solution is, spacers the go on so you can change 10 mm to 14mm so no worries and its a cheap fix

cheers wilky hoped this helped

So shouldn't mess the wheel or frame up then?
